I even clearly said older Rockstar games look better on 360 besides for LA Noire.
That’s because Xbox 360 used to be the lead-platform of Rockstar titles.
GTA IV was being developed for Xbox 360, because the PS3 didn’t arrive the market until a year after the launch of the Microsoft console. They had/have a whole year more experience with the Xbox than with the PlayStation. Not to mention that the developer kit of Sony was allegedly terribly organized. The not so good organization and the lack of experience (in comparison) are the reason why Rockstar games kept looking better on the Microsoft console.
LAN had a slightly smoother framerate and graphics on the PS3 due the fact that the game was actually supposed to release exclusively for that platform. Though, the longer the development lasted the more expensive it got. That’s why they decided to release it for multiple platforms. The fact that GTA V was shown on PS3 for the most part does by no means suggest that it’s automatically the best version. It’s easily possible that Sony pays them well just to make their version of the game looking like the best, and that’s most likely the case.
You seem to fall for their strategy, so I would say it works perfectly.

According to last week’s Leslie Benzies interview, they’d considered fuel, but it’s something that would significantly change the dynamic of the whole game, which is why, at the time of the interview, they hadn’t put it in.
In other words, they thought that it makes a big change to the way the game plays and it’s a big risk to change the dynamic of the game so late before release.
Personally, I don’t like the idea. You see it’s not about how long the refill animation is. It’s about the way that you’re forcing the player away from what he’s doing for the purposes of a menial and needless chore. That means that the player is on his way to do something, it doesn’t matter what, he’s occupied with whatever when his fuel starts running low. So now it’s interrupting him from what he’s doing and has to drive halfway across a fairly large map to find a gas station.
It’s exactly the same kind of annoyance as Roman’s bowling phone calls.
So as you see, it totally upsets the pacing of the game. That’s why Rockstar have thought twice before putting fuel in.
